I'm working on starting a complete customizers database. It isn't finished yet but I do have some info up there on what is needed to get started.
Feel free to check it out at Homemade Joes the Authority on Custom Action Figures.

Also a small vice that is used in metalworks and jewelerymaking, I have a small vice clamp that holds lower part of figure down while opening the top with screwdriver so the figure does not bounce all over the place and one does not hurt ones hand when doing the job.

My equipment includes:
1. An assortment of brushes.
2. A collection of acrylic/latex paints - Testors is my brand.
3. Xacto knife.
4. Dremel with standard attachments.
I don't do any sculpting, but a lot of people use green stuff or epoxy putties.

Diogenes, one of the better known proponents of the school of Cynics, was often seen to be strolling about with a lamp in broad daylight and when asked what it was for, he would reply "I'm looking for an honest man."
